Hi you will probably be signed off work for 2 weeks but honestly, probably ok after a week!

Hi XxjustmexX. Just to wish you well with the laparoscopy and for a speedy recovery. You will be uncomfortable for a few days afterwards, but they will give you some pain killers, so try not to worry. If you have a lot done, you may need to take a week or two off work – depending upon the type of work you do, but your consultant will discuss this with you. Your tummy will be a bit “puffy” for a few days as they use a gas to inflate it so they can look around more easily. This often comes away as flatulence, so beware! Good luck! Diane

Hi. I had laparoscopy in April last year. That's when they discovered I had severe endometriosis. I had a lot of adhesions and they did quite a bit of work on me. I had to stay in overnight as I took longer to recover than most of the other women on the ward but I got home the very next morning. I had difficulty moving around, sitting down, getting up, getting into bed etc and I tired very easily. The gas was uncomfortable and I was puffy for a good while. I had just over 2 wks off work. Everybody's different though so you'll probably need to play it by ear and see how things go. Good luck 🌼💛🌼 x x

Trapped wind in your ribs is a killer if you get it! I stayed in when I had both of mine - and was back to work in a week x

Does sound painful. Did it work for you ? X

It was prob a little sore for a day or two - nothing extreme - trapped wind hurts more if you get that but they normally give you peppermint to help it.

You'll be fine x
